Jon Moxley, the AEW star recently joined his wife and former WWE commentator, Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions podcast. He revealed his retirement plans and spoke about his physical status.
Jon Moxley will decide about his future in next few years
The current AEW Champion will turn 35 next month and said that he would like to wrestle when he is 50. He has been a part of several brutal matches during his stint in AEW and he is continuing with it, causing much more physical exhaustion. He will make the decision of hanging up the boots after assessing his body in next one or two years.
“It’s the life we live and it’s part of the job or whatever. If I just kept on doing that at the same pace, I wouldn’t have lasted long. I can feel my physical window. Not that it’s closing, but I can feel the distance now. I’m not gonna say I can feel it closing but I’m aware of it now and I wanna keep it open and extend and I wanna be able to wrestle as long as I possibly can. I would like to be 50 and wrestle. If we had kids, I would like them to be able and come see me wrestle and I like to do physical stuff. So, over the next year or two, I’ll make a — I’ll just kind of see where I’m at physically and make a decision. This whole pandemic situation really changed the year and made it a lot less busy for me.”
AEW currently holds its show at Daily’s Place in Jacksonvile. Moxley talked about the place and how it compliments the work that he and fellow wrestlers do. It is also a safe place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
But also, I’ve been having super physical matches and [I’ve] been going back and forth to Jacksonville which is a bitch. Jacksonville’s a great town, Daily’s Place is a great venue, it’s perfect for what we’re doing and I’m glad that we have it. It’s a blessing that we have such a great venue to run safely in, but getting to Jacksonville to Vegas and back and back and forth is a bitch. Like the west coast guys are like, ‘Aw man, this is a bitch’ because it’s a full day of travel.”
Jon Moxley is set to defend his AEW World title against Kenny Omega on December 2.
